10yearold girl trapped under Mumbai wall collapse debris

first_imgMumbai: Rescue workers in the congested Pimpripada area of north Mumbai are working to get a 10-year- old girl out of the debris of a wall which collapsed, killing 18 persons early Tuesday. A rescue worker said the girl, Sanchita Nalawade, has been crying for help and asking for water since the last few hours. “Shortly after the wall collapsed, we rescued a child from underneath the debris. This girl Sanchita has been crying for help since 2 am,” the worker, a local resident, said. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity! “Mujhe bahar nikalo,” has been her repeated plea, he said. The girl’s cry for help from under the debris set off a massive rescue effort. Sanchita’s faint voice could be heard calling out for water to drink. Efforts are on to cut a small section of the wall and clear a path for the girl to escape. At the scene of the tragedy, an eyewitness said when the wall collapsed, it was like a tsunami accompanied by a massive thud. “Water was getting accumulated since it began raining heavily several hours ago. It created massive pressure on the wall. It soon gave way,” a resident said. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killed People gathered at the site were seen discussing the ownership of the wall. While some claimed it belonged to the Forest department, others said the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation was the owner, while some said auto major Mahindra & Mahindra had erected it. “It came down like a tsunami and the gushing waters threw aside everything that came its way,” said Sachin Dhuri, a resident. Another local likened the collapse to the flash floods in Uttarakhand’s Kedarnath in 2013, which killed over 5,500 people and buried most swathes of the town in slush. Political parties, who regularly line up for votes, also came under fire as the residents, trying to come to terms with the tragedy, spoke in huddles at the site. “They come here for votes but no one listens to us. Once elections are over, they disappear. They have done nothing for us,” resident Suresh Patil said. “These political parties have a use and throw attitude towards us,” said Pramod Pawar, another local. Residents said 60-70 hutments got damaged in the wall collapse, and demanded adequate compensation from the authorities. Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis earlier in the day announced Rs 5 lakh to the kin of each deceased. “The government promises housing for all but does not do anything. Lives have been lost. It should rehabilitate us now,” said resident Mahindra Singh. Eighteen people were killed and over 50 injured when heavy rains led to a wall collapsing on hutments in Malad’s Pimpripada area.last_img read more

Vehicles appear to cause more pollution as compared to firecrackers SC

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Tuesday said why people were “running after” firecracker industries when it seems that automobiles were “bigger” contributor to pollution, and asked the Centre whether there was any comparative study on pollution caused by both.While expressing serious concern over loss of jobs of people involved in manufacture and sale of firecrackers, a bench of Justices S A Bobde and S A Nazeer said, “We do not wish to generate unemployment.” “Is there any comparative study on what proportion of pollution is caused by firecrackers and what proportion is caused by automobiles? It seems you are running after firecrackers, but bigger pollution contributor is perhaps vehicles,” the bench told Additional Solicitor General A N S Nadkarni, who was appearing for the Centre.last_img read more

Neil Young concludes antioil sands concert series with show in Calgary

“This is a metaphor. Fort Mac stands for the entire oil sands area. I’m talking about your house on the street in Fort Mac.”Young’s Hiroshima claim prompted some Twitter users in the Fort McMurray area to post pictures of natural scenes of rivers, lakes and forests under the hashtag #myhiroshima.Many of the photos are accompanied by comments such as, “The ’wasteland’ behind my house,” or, “Dog sledding through nuclear wasteland,” and are clearly meant to highlight the discrepancy between the rock star’s portrayal of their home and what they say is the reality outside their doors.Another shot of #myhiroshima.

So disappointed,” tweeted Terri Windover to Young’s official Twitter account.Catherine Swift, head of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, posted in #myhiroshima that Young was the “Jenny McCarthy” of the “anti-economic success anti-well-paying jobs movement.”McCarthy, a former model/actress, vehemently claims childhood vaccinations cause autism and other disabilities, despite those claims having been disproven by rigorous scientific research.“Keep on rockin in the dumb world,” Swift tweeted.Jim Cuddy from the Canadian band Blue Rodeo called Young’s comparison of the oil sands with Hiroshima extreme.Still, Cuddy suggested that Young has triggered a national discussion about the oil sands that is long overdue.he movement and the efforts of Honour the Treaties will continue until the treaties are honouredYoung, meanwhile, said he remains a “proud Canadian,” having just renewed his passport in Winnipeg a few days ago.“Canada is a great, great country. I love Canada. Canada used to be a world leader, not a follower,” he said.“The movement and the efforts of Honour the Treaties will continue until the treaties are honoured.” “Young’s representative suggested oil sands producers participate in Neil Young’s media conference today, but when CAPP requested a neutral moderator and equal representation, the organizer said this was not acceptable,” the CAPP statement said.Environmentalist David Suzuki moderated the panel discussions, which included First Nations representatives and scientist David Schindler, who has studied the impacts of oil sands pollution.Young garnered considerable publicity last week with his first three concerts and has generated considerable debate.His tour — which Young said Sunday was not meant to be an “anti-tar sands crusade” — included stops in Toronto, Winnipeg and Regina where Young dropped statements about the oil sands that many denounced as over-the top.On Sunday, Young continued to stand by statements that the oil sands mining projects near Fort McMurray resemble the devastation wrought by the atomic bomb in Hiroshima in 1945. But he said the media’s focus on those comments misses the point.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jeff McIntosh Canadian rocker Neil Young says his Honour the Treaties tour has accomplished what it set out to do, surpassing its fundraising goal for a Northern Alberta First Nation fighting oil sands development and raising awareness of the broader issue of aboriginal rights.[np_storybar title=”Neil Young and his fellow oil sands critics have yet to propose a single credible alternative” link=”http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2014/01/19/michael-den-tandt-neil-young-and-his-fellow-oil-sands-critics-have-yet-to-propose-a-single-credible-alternative/”%5DMichael Den Tandt: Neil Young is probably no more, and no less, a moral coward than the next person. But the Canadian rocker is a moral coward. Keep reading. [/np_storybar]“We have succeeded beyond our wildest dreams in raising money for legal defence of the First Nations. Global environmental forces are joining us now with financial resources and it’s now because of the Canadian people’s awesome response to our call for justice,” Young told before the final show of the four-stop circuit in Calgary, the financial heart of Canada’s oil patch.“We have matched and multiplied the money we have raised from Canadians supporting honour the treaties. We will be positioned to match the legal power of our opposition dollar for dollar.”The goal of raising $75,000 for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation’s legal defence fund was surpassed a few days ago, Young said. The ACFN announced last week it had filed a legal challenge to Ottawa’s recent approval of Royal Dutch Shell’s planned Jackpine oil sands mine.Beyond the financial goal, Young said the concerts have succeeded in getting Canadians talking.“So it’s a win for us, because we’re all talking about it. No matter how you feel, there’s a discussion going on at the breakfast table. That’s big. That’s real. That’s Canada.”The singer did not accept an invitation from Canada’s oil and gas industry lobby group to meet before Sunday’s show.The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers issued a statement Sunday saying it offered to “have a balanced discussion,” but a representative of Young and Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Chief Allan Adam offered an alternative that was unacceptable, CAPP said.Leah Hennel/Postmedia News read more

Not a trivial pursuit Iceland startup Plain Vanilla finds success with quiz

Not a trivial pursuit: Iceland startup Plain Vanilla finds success with quiz app This photo taken in early 2014 and made available by Plain Vanilla on Thursday March 6, 2014, shows Thor Fridriksson, the founder and CEO of Plain Vanilla Games in their offices in Reykjavik. A small startup has taken the gaming world by storm, finding success with its QuizUp trivia app and spurning offers to abandon its remote Iceland headquarters in favor of California’s Silicon Valley. The company, Plain Vanilla, Thursday March 6, 2014, launches the Android version of QuizUp, which already has 10 million users who have played more than 1 billion matches on their iPhones and iPads. (AP Photo/Plain Vanilla Games) REYKJAVIK, Iceland – A small startup has taken the gaming world by storm, finding success with its QuizUp trivia app and spurning offers to abandon its remote Iceland headquarters in favour of California’s Silicon Valley.The company, Plain Vanilla, on Thursday launches the Android version of QuizUp, which already has 10 million users who have played more than 1 billion matches on their iPhones and iPads.Founder and CEO Thor Fridriksson told the Associated Press he plans to keep the company based in Iceland in part to show what it is possible to achieve even after the country’s horrendous economic problems.“Iceland has had a tough time since the banking crisis,” said Fridriksson. “I think if Plain Vanilla stays in Iceland, creates more jobs and shows other startups what’s possible, that’s a positive thing.”In the autumn of 2008, Iceland’s three largest banks collapsed, sending its economy into a freefall with businesses shuttering, the currency depreciating and unemployment rising to unprecedented levels. The country is still recovering.In this sombre mood, Plain Vanilla’s success stands out. It started with 7 employees and currently has 45, Fridriksson said.Venture capitalists have poured more than $30 million into the company, which seems to have found a niche in the extremely competitive app business.What makes the trivia app stand out in a field crowded with tens of thousands of choices?QuizUp players can choose among more than 400 categories that range from questions about sports to literature to pop culture. Some of the most popular categories include: Harry Potter, Celebrities, Spelling, and Disney.“For me, it’s two things,” said Mike Wehner, the editor of The Unofficial Apple Weblog. “First, the ridiculous number of categories available means that there’s going to be something that everyone is an expert in. For example, I don’t watch a whole lot of TV, but of the shows I do watch, I know a LOT about them. So although I’d probably be really bad at a trivia game where general ‘TV’ was a category, I’m one of the best in the world at the Futurama category in QuizUp.”The real-time mobile application also allows users to play against other people, not computers. Players can connect with, and challenge friends through Facebook, or play against strangers, which sets the app apart from many other trivia games.“It constantly pushes you forward by telling you who you’re better than,” said Wehner. “You answer a few questions about a topic and you don’t make much progress, but if you answer a few dozen, you might be the best in your city. Keep going and you’re the best in your state, country, and eventually the world. Once you get that first carrot, there’s always another one dangling in front of you.” by Jenna Gottlieb, The Associated Press Posted Mar 6, 2014 11:27 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

University moves to streamline its ancillary operations

The University announced today it is updating the way it organizes and delivers a wide range of support, business-oriented and service-based departments, from Residences and Food Services to Parking, Brock Sports, Youth Programs, the Campus Store and Printing Services.Besides creating a more efficient reporting structure, the changes will also see the move of several senior Brock administrators into new roles.The new look, to be phased in over the first half of April, is the latest of several updates the University has undertaken in the past two years to reorganize how it staffs and delivers a wide range of student and administrative services.In this latest move, the most visible result is a new division called Ancillary Services, which is comprised of Residences; Brock Sports; Recreation & Youth Programs; Hospitality & Conference Services; Campus Store & Parking Services; and Ancillary Service Supports. It will be headed by Bryan Boles, who has been Brock’s Associate Vice-President of Finance but now moves to the newly-created position of Associate Vice-President, Ancillary Services.Replacing Boles as AVP Finance in an interim capacity will be Josh Tonnos, who has been Brock’s Director of Accounting and Treasury for the past three years.Tom Arkell, who has been Associate Vice-President of University Services, moves to the new role of Special Advisor to the Vice-President Administration. A major task of this portfolio will be helping to manage the 2021 Canada Games, which will be held in Niagara. Arkell will also assist administratively with Rodman Hall and its transition to sustainability, working with partners at Brock and in the surrounding community.Other realignments include shifting Printing Services into the Marketing & Communications team, and having Shipping, Receiving & Mail rejoin the Procurement team in Finance.Brian Hutchings, Vice-President of Administration, said Brock is continuing in its efforts to modernize a complex network of services into a delivery model that is nimble, intuitive and reflects how people use and access services in the 21st century.“This continuing evolution of our operations will make the University stronger and better positioned to respond as new challenges and opportunities arise,” said Hutchings. read more

Mens hockey No 4 seed Buckeyes fall to No 2 seed MinnesotaDuluth

Ohio State sophomore forward Mason Jobst falls on the ice during Ohio State’s loss to Michigan State on March 3 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Kevin Stankiewicz | Lantern photographerIn spite of two third-period goals and outshooting their opponents 42-32 in the game, the No. 4 seed Ohio State men’s hockey team fell to the No. 2 seed Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs, 3-2, in overtime in the first round of the West region of the NCAA tournament.Redshirt junior defender Matt Joyaux and freshman defender Gordi Myer scored for OSU in the loss. Senior goaltender Matt Tomkins was excellent between the pipes for the Scarlet and Gray, notching 29 saves.OSU opened the first period by warding off substantial Bulldog puck possession in their zone, including an unsuccessful powerplay. With a little over three minutes remaining, however, the Scarlet and Gray seemed to take the lead on its first powerplay of the contest — but the goal was disallowed after review.Collectively, the Buckeyes led the shot count 9-6 after 20 minutes, entering the first intermission scoreless.The Scarlet and Gray seemed to carry momentum out of the break into the second period, but it was Minnesota-Duluth who opened the game’s scoring. On the rush just 49 seconds in, Bulldogs senior forward and captain Dominic Toninato fired a laser into the opposite corner to put his team up 1-0 early in the second stanza.Just three minutes later Minnesota-Duluth seemed to double its lead as Toninato scored his second from close range, but a goal was disallowed for a second time in the game to keep the Buckeyes’ deficit at one.Despite being down a goal, OSU continued to find itself in front of the Bulldog net with chances to score, but could not beat freshman netminder Hunter Miska — who is amongst the nation’s best in the shutout category.With 6:19 left in the period, Minnesota-Duluth freshman defenseman Nick Wolff buried a shot from the point into the back of the net to make it 2-0 into the final trip to the locker room.The Buckeyes looked to capitalize on their opportunities, and to get back into the game as what could possibly be the final 20 minutes of their season began. With just under 13 minutes remaining, Joyaux one-timed a wrister from the point past Miska to cut the Minnesota-Duluth lead to one on his third goal of the season. Junior forward Kevin Miller and sophomore forward Dakota Joshua each recorded an assist on the play — their fourth and 23rd helpers of the season.Minutes later, the Scarlet and Gray tied the game when freshman forward Tanner Laczynski centered a pass to a waiting Myer, who cashed for his first goal in an OSU uniform to equalize for his team at the 7:20 mark of the final frame.While time ran down in the third period, neither the Buckeyes nor the Bulldogs could not capture the go-ahead goal — and as the horn sounded, both sides found themselves in a 2-2 deadlock at the end of regulation.Into overtime, OSU possessed the momentum and the advantage in the shots category after a comeback in the previous period. However, Miska continued to be spectacular in net for the Bulldogs on multiple occasions, denying Joyaux and senior forward David Gust of a guaranteed tap-in with the edge of his stick early on in the extra period.Despite being dominated offensively in the final 20 minutes, Minnesota-Duluth captured the game-winning goal when senior defender Willie Raskob one-timed a slapshot from the point past Tomkins to send the Bulldogs into the regional championship.Minnesota-Duluth will take on Boston University Saturday evening with a trip to the Frozen Four on the line. The Buckeyes graduate seven seniors from this year’s roster, and end their season with 21-12-6 record. read more

Győr champion for the third time in the season

Two who will be missedToday’s matches alse marked the last in the career of two international stars of the likes of Anja Althaus and Marija Jovanovic. The German international had confirmed her retirement in the mixed zone of the Papp Laszlo Sportarena last year, after having lost the EHF Final 4 with HC Vardar, but a call from the Hungarian powerhouse made her change her mind and she kept on playing for one more year in which she lifted three titles, inlcuding her third Champions League title (the other two with Viborg HK).Jovanovic, on the other hand, had announced her retirement from the national team last year, and accoording to an article from the EHFCL site a month ago, this was also her last season as a professional handball player: “I could have obviously stayed for a couple more seasons, but I do not want to force myself to do it. This season has been the best ever, but also the hardest, and I feel it is the right time”, she would state. ← Previous Story Over 20.000 votes for the best young handball girls in season 2017/2018 – Dumanska has biggest support Next Story → Dramatic 30 seconds in Hungary – Two screens, one dream, celebration in Gyor In a nerve-racking definition, on the last journey of the Hungarian League, Győri Audi ETO KC obtained their 14th title due to goal difference with FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria, who finished with the same points, but couldn’t hold on to the championship on the last play of the match, literally. Today’s matches marked the farewell for Ambros Martín who will move to Rostov-Don and for Anja Althaus and Marija Jovanovic who retired from professional handball.It’s been only a little bit more than a week after Győr conquered their 4th Champions League title and today they had the chance to repeat the domestic league championship and obtain the third title of the season (also won the Hungarian Cup) under the command of Ambros Martín, who is set to leave after six fruitful years in the club. A six goal difference over today’s rival Békéscsabai was done, as the match ended 34-19 in the Audi Arena. However, the other contender for the title was still playing in Budapest. FTC-Rail Cargo Hungaria was defeating Vaci NKSE 42-23 and with that difference, they were becoming the new champions, but a penalty caused by Dora Hornyak on the last minute of the match gave the visitors the chance to reduce the gap. Although it was not important for that result itself, it could make the difference at the top of the ranking. Patricia Kovács took the shot from the 7-meter line and softly dropped the ball over Biro’s head to give Győr the goal difference they needed. The last ball of the match was for the home team and Gabor Elek called for a time-out to set the plan. With 24 seconds left to be played, FTC moved the ball and Noémi Hafrá, who had had a great match, took a standing shot from the left back position, but it went too wide; which meant that the 42-24 victory was not enough for FTC to lift the trophy.With this new league title, the 5th under Martín’s command, Győri Audi ETO KC is only one title behind the most winner team in the Hungarian league, Vasas, which boasts 15 championships. The Spanish coach will leave the Hungarian champion after havng successfully obtained the three titles at stake this season: the Hungarian Cup, EHF Champions League and Hungarian League.Despite the tough season, Győr has shown great integrity to face all the injuries and achieve all of their goals. This was a recurrent topic ahead of the EHF Final 4 in Budapest and something that both players and coaching staff have remarked: and far from being an excuse, we should remember that nearly 50% of the squad suffered from an either short or long term injury during the season, and the list includes Kari Grimsbø, Eduarda Amorim, Anne Mette Hansen, Anja Althaus, Jana Knedlikova, Nycke Groot, Stine Oftedal, Zsuzsanna Tomori and Nora Mørk. Finishing the season with all three titles speaks well of al the involved in the making. Ambros Martinanja althausftc rail cargo hungariaGyori Audi ETO KCHungarian LeagueMarija Jovanovic read more

Smalling reveals hes frustrated with only a draw against Arsenal

first_imgManchester United defender Chris Smalling has revealed his disappointment over the team’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday.Speaking to MUTV after the game, Smalling revealed his frustrations that United couldn’t win the game.“I think we’re frustrated. We took the initiative in both halves – especially in the second half,” he said.“We were on the front foot and put them on the back foot. I thought maybe our aggression and intensity deserved another goal.”Speaking about the team’s pressing style of play, he said:Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Yeah, it was. We knew that they take risks from the back, that we’d be presented chances, and we knew that if we got after them we’d make it uncomfortable for them, and I felt like they were pretty uncomfortable for most of the night.”On United’s habit of conceding the first goal first, Smalling said:“Yeah. I think their first was a scrappy goal and, yeah, we were on the back foot again, but this team never gives up and you can see that.”Speaking on the intensity of the game, he said:“It was, and it really ramped up in that second half. It was quite end-to-end. You could see how much three points meant to both of us, so we were going for it. If we can bring that intensity to each game, it really lifts the crowd, because you could see how much they were vibing off it.”last_img read more

Whitening products may damage teeth

first_imgTeeth whitening products – that promise to make your smile brighter – may also be causing tooth damage, a study has found. Scientists at Stockton University in the US found that hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in over-the-counter whitening strips, can damage the protein-rich dentin tissue found beneath the tooth’s protective enamel. The tooth is made of three layers: the outer tooth enamel, an underlying dentin layer and connective tissue that binds the roots to the gum.

The team focused on dentin, which makes up most of the tooth and has high levels of protein, most of which is collagen. It is well established that hydrogen peroxide can penetrate the enamel and dentin. Previous work by the researchers showed that collagen in the dentin layer decreased when teeth were treated with whitening strips. “We sought to further characterize what the hydrogen peroxide was doing to collagen. We used entire teeth for the studies and focused on the impact hydrogen peroxide has on the proteins,” said Kelly Keenan, associate professor at Stockton University.

In additional experiments, they treated pure collagen with hydrogen peroxide and then analysed the protein using a gel electrophoresis laboratory technique that allows the protein to be visualised. “Our results showed that treatment with hydrogen peroxide concentrations similar to those found in whitening strips is enough to make the original collagen protein disappear, which is presumably due to the formation of many smaller fragments,” Keenan said in the statement. The researchers point out that their experiments did not address whether collagen and other proteins in the teeth can be regenerated, so it is unknown if the tooth damage is permanent. Following this research, next, the researchers plan to further characterise the protein fragments released when collagen is treated with hydrogen peroxide and determine if hydrogen peroxide has the same impact on other proteins in the teeth.last_img read more

Results were published in the February 2015 issue of the journal Neurobiology of Disease. Results of the small study of nine men provide further evidence for potential long-term neurological risk to football players who sustain repeated concussions and support calls for better player protections.”We’re hoping that our findings are going to further inform the game,” says Jennifer Coughlin, M.D., assistant professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. “That may mean individuals are able to make more educated decisions about whether they’re susceptible to brain injury, advise how helmets are structured or inform guidelines for the game to better protect players.”Several anecdotal accounts and studies have suggested that athletes, such as collegiate and professional football, hockey and soccer players exposed to repeat concussions could suffer permanent brain damage and deficits from these events. However, the mechanism of damage and the source of these deficits have been unclear.To reveal them, Coughlin; Yuchuan Wang, Ph.D., assistant professor of radiology and radiological science at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; and their colleagues used tests to directly detect deficits and to quantify localized molecular differences between the brains of former players and healthy people who didn’t play football.The researchers recruited nine former NFL players who retired decades ago and ranged in age from 57 to 74. The men had played a variety of team positions and had a wide range of self-reported, historical concussions, varying from none for a running back to 40 for a defensive tackle. The researchers also recruited nine age-matched “controls” — healthy individuals who had no reason to suspect they had brain injuries.Each of the volunteers underwent a positron emission tomography (PET) scan, a test in which an injected radioactive chemical binds to a specific biological molecule, allowing researchers to physically see and measure its presence throughout the body. In this case, the research team focused on the translocator protein, which signals the degree of damage and repair in the brain. While healthy individuals have low levels of this protein spread throughout the brain, those with brain injuries tend to have concentrated zones with high levels of translocator protein wherever an injury has occurred.The volunteers also underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs), which allowed the researchers to match up the PET scan findings with anatomical locations in the volunteers’ brains and check for structural abnormalities. In addition, they took a battery of memory tests.While the control volunteers’ tests showed no evidence of brain damage, PET scans showed that on average, the group of former NFL players had evidence of brain injury in several temporal medial lobe regions, including the amygdala, a region that plays a significant role in regulating mood. Imaging also identified injuries in many players’ supramarginal gyrus, an area linked to verbal memory.While the hippocampus, an area that plays a role in several aspects of memory, didn’t show evidence of damage in the PET scans, MRIs of the former players’ brains showed atrophy of the right-side hippocampus, suggesting that this region may have shrunk in size due to previous damage.Additionally, many of the NFL players scored low on memory testing, particularly in tests of verbal learning and memory.Though the researchers emphasize that this pilot study is small in size, they say that the evidence among just nine former NFL players suggests that there are molecular and structural changes in specific brain regions of athletes who have a history of repetitive hits to the head, even many years after they’ve left active play.The researchers are currently looking for translocator protein hotspots in both active and recently retired players to help determine whether these changes develop close to the time of play or whether they’re a result of a more delayed response to injury with similarities to other degenerative brain disorders.If these findings are seen in studies with larger numbers of participants, they say, use of this molecular brain imaging technique could eventually lead to changes in the way players are treated after experiencing concussion or how contact sports are played.For more information: www.journals.elsevier.com/neurobiology-of-disease FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.
